We know that oral health is an important part of your employees’ overall health and that’s why prevention is at the core of our philosophy. Taking care of their oral health can help decrease the risk of serious medical conditions, including heart disease, diabetes, cancer, pregnancy complications, and more, which can help keep your employees healthier and more productive, while keeping costs down for your business.

  • Gum disease can increase colorectal cancer risk by almost 50%.2
  • If you’re pregnant, gum disease can increase the risk of early labor by 45%.3

Shared health records mean our dentists see when members are due for medical screenings and can even help schedule their appointments right away, which can lead to early detection if there is a problem.

All plans come with no waiting periods or extra costs. On most plans, members can get a routine dental exam with X-rays, a cleaning, and fluoride treatment for a low copayment.

Our dental group consists of dentists, specialists, and hygienists who practice evidence-based preventive care at our 21 conveniently located Kaiser Permanente dental offices.
